In ham radio, you are into the "stealth" antenna game. Not seen, not
there... This is the standard problem when you are in a development
with deed restrictions and can't have an outside antenna.
Consider one of these:
1. Feed your FM tuner from the cable network. Use a 75 ohm cable to
300 ohm twinlead transformer -- radio shack. You might also need a
line splitter, in the event that you have a TV connected to the outlet
you wish to use. If you have a "Type F" connector on the back of the
FM receiver, then you don't need the balun transformer, and can feed
it directly. This is usually the best bet, but be aware that some
cable providers do not provide an FM signal over the cable. Make a
call to tech support first.
2. If your reception is especially strong, just a piece of wire, 14 to
1/2 wavelength at the center of the FM band might suffice. There might
be a connection on the back of the set, and a pigtail to ground the
other side/screw terminal.
3. An inside dipole, fabricated to be 1/2 wavelength at the center of
the FM band, and fed with 300 ohm twinlead at the center. Sometimes,
these come already made up at places like Radio Shack. It takes about
10 minutes to make one. Just make sure the solder connections are
good. Crimp on lugs on the feed line for a neat and good connection.
Put the dipole up as high indoors as you can, and at 90 degrees to the
station(s) you want to receive. If you can, put it in the attic.
Before you tear the old antenna down, try some of the above, and if
they aren't to your satisfaction, the neighbors will have to live with
